Freescale Introduces Robust, High-Speed CAN Transceivers for Industrial and Automotive Applications

Freescale MC33901 MC34901

Devices feature ultra-low quiescent current; engineered to address stringent electromagnetic compatibility requirements without external noise filtering

To help manufacturers and systems designers more easily achieve compliance with increasingly stringent industrial and automotive safety requirements, Freescale Semiconductor announced a family of robust CAN transceivers designed for high-speed performance and reliability.

Freescale - MC33901, MC34901

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electrostatic discharge (ESD) are critical requirements in harsh industrial and automotive environments due to the close proximity of a wide range of networked electronic systems and devices. Freescale's MC33901 and MC34901 chokeless CAN high-speed physical layer transceivers deliver outstanding EMC performance and high ESD robustness without the need for external components, thereby reducing overall system costs. The devices also offer fail-safe features to assist with system functional safety, as well as exceptionally low quiescent current down to 8 micro amps.

The MC33901 and MC34901 products convert digital protocol information into analog CAN communication across in-vehicle networks, as well as long-length CAN node interconnect for industrial applications. The devices are ideal for a broad range of applications including safety-critical industrial motor control, factory automation and industrial robotics systems, as well as automotive body electronics, power train and infotainment systems. Both products offer outstanding performance at 2 Mbps baud rate to address CAN FD (flexible data) application requirements.
